Chambre Claire Universaille, nickel camera lucida, cased with 9 of 12 lenses intact ( 3 broken). Made in France by Breville, it is in perfect, unused condition inside and out. Unfortunately somebody opened it upside down resulting in the cracking of 3 of the diamond etched and numbered lenses ( glued together but unuseable). Discounted to reflect the loss. Perfect case and prism. c. 1920.
